Werner pointed out yesterday to a guy asking the same thing that
should be the thing.
As far as I know, nobody yet tested this with buzz and so confirmed that
the effective buzz problem actually comes at the MIC inputs to WM8753.

I don't have gerber layer data, but the bead was placed in series with
